I am Katja Marova, deputy member of Lappeenranta City Council, deputy member of Lappeenranta’s city development committee and candidate for Parliament in the 2023 Parliamentary elections.
I have a Master’s degree in International Business Management, and I have worked in the business world for a long time.
I got involved in politics two years ago, because I wanted to:
- Promote equality, especially in working life
- Make the voices of minorities heard
- Strengthen direct democracy and citizen participation
Women still earn on average about 7% less than men for performing the same job.
Discrimination by name is enormus in the labour market, and the pressure on appearance is still high.
With my election campaign, I would like to highlight topics and themes that are close to my heart, which I think require a lively discussion in society.
Here they are:
- My Finland: let the voices of the national minorities be heard
- A fairer working life
- Women’s status in Finland
- “Education is investment in the future”: you have to invest in education, people’s competence is a condition to the state’s success
- Support for small businesses! If the public services are outsourced, the contracts must be awarded primarily to small businesses!
- Promotion of direct democracy and citizen participation
- For the peace, no to military alliances like NATO, no to nuclear weapons.
Numerous structural changes to society’s operation and changes in attitude are needed.
